In Topic: Wings' Goaltending Situation

11 August 2010 - 04:16 PM

Yup, I thought he played just fine. To say that Howard was the make or break of the team winning/losing is pretty disingenuous if you ask me.



Really? How about that Game 3 against San Jose? Wings in control and then Howard gives up the weakest goal I can remember from the side boards, from the end line, and the Wings lose the game. The entire series was lost on that one goal. If he makes that "save" the Wings win game 3 and who knows where it goes from there. Once that goal slipped over the line the Wings were out of the playoffs.

We'll see how tightly the Sharks are gripping the stick. Pressure is firmly on them in a big way. All we need to do is sit back and enjoy. Hey... it's kinda nice to not have any expectations for once.


See I don't think the pressure will be on them for Game 5. Now, they end up losing tonight and holy hell, the pressure that the media will put on them will be unseen before AND the doubt will start to creep in their minds from playoffs past, "oh no, not again..."

They come back to Detroit for a Game 6 and the weight of the world will be on SJ. We just gotta bring them back for Game 6.

I still think the Sharks will win the series. Now, if we can steal game 5 I'll really think the Wings can come back and win this thing. Game 5 scares me the most though, and I just don't see the Wings coming back to Detroit with SJ in tow. :unsure:

Howard.

4 goals against in every single game and he has the incredible ability to give up the timely goal.

Howard's now let in as many goals as Osgood did on the entire '98 Cup run...


That's where I first saw it.
